JURAVIN RESEARCH reveals: Alcohol is the New Form of Unpainful  Happy Spiritual Suicide: 3 million DEATHS annually

JURAVIN RESEARCH reveals: Alcohol is the New Form of Unpainful Happy Spiritual Suicide: 3 million DEATHS annually

Alcohol deaths: 1 in 19 worldwide. 1 in 7 in the age bracket 20 to 39

JURAVIN RESEARCH reveals scary statistics of alcohol abuse to a degree of “spiritual suicide”. While social drinking may have its advantages, it seems like alcohol may be used subconsciously as a suicidal form to forget real-life problems, feel artificially happy and die. “Spirits” get a death toll number of 3 million worldwide.

We found a correlation between alcohol consumption and  suicide rate based on World Happiness Report 2017

Important Key Facts

  • 3 million deaths worldwide annually resulting from harmful use of alcohol, representing 5.3% (1 in 19) of all deaths.
  • 200 related diseases: Alcohol consumption is a causal factor in more than 200 disease and injury conditions. Drinking alcohol is associated with a risk of developing health problems such as mental and behavioral disorders, including alcohol dependence, major noncommunicable diseases such as liver cirrhosis, some cancers and cardiovascular diseases, as well as injuries resulting from violence and road clashes and collisions.
  • 1 in 20 dies: Overall 5.1% of the global burden of disease and injury is attributable to alcohol, as measured in disability-adjusted life years (DALYs).
  • Alcohol consumption causes death and disability relatively early in life. In the age group, 20 to 39 years approximately 13.5% (1 in 7) of the total deaths are alcohol-attributable.
  • The suicide factor: there is a causal relationship between the harmful use of alcohol and a range of mental and behavioral disorders, other noncommunicable conditions as well as injuries.
  • The latest causal relationships have been established between harmful drinking and incidence of infectious diseases such as tuberculosis as well as the course of HIV/AIDS.
  • Social and economic losses: Beyond health consequences, the harmful use of alcohol brings significant social and economic losses to individuals and society at large.
  • There are gender differences in alcohol-related mortality and morbidity, as well as levels and patterns of alcohol consumption.
  • Men Vs. Women: The percentage of alcohol-attributable deaths among men amount to 7.7% of all global deaths compared to 2.6% of all deaths among women. Total alcohol per capita consumption in 2010 among male and female drinkers worldwide was on average 19.4 liters for males and 7.0 liters of pure alcohol for females.
  • Children: More than 10 percent of U.S. children live with a parent with alcohol problems (2012 study)

  • Israel’s maternal mortality is 1.43 times better than the world average
  • Israel’s maternal mortality is 2.8 times better than the USA
  • Israel’s maternal mortality is 1.2 times better than Europe-top

Israel's maternal mortality is 1.43 times better than world average

Additional stats

  • 303,000 women died due to complications of pregnancy or childbirth in 2015. Almost all of these deaths occurred in low- and middle-income countries (99%). Reducing maternal mortality crucially depends upon ensuring that women have access to quality care before, during and after childbirth.

  • Every day, approximately 830 women die from preventable causes related to pregnancy and childbirth.
  • 99% of all maternal deaths occur in developing countries.
  • Maternal mortality is higher in women living in rural areas and among poorer communities.
  • Young adolescents face a higher risk of complications and death as a result of pregnancy than other women.
  • Skilled care before, during and after childbirth can save the lives of women and newborn babies.
  • Between 1990 and 2015, maternal mortality worldwide dropped by about 44% from an estimated 532,000 in 1990 to 303,000 in 2015. The progress is notable, but the annual rate of decline is less than half of what is needed to achieve the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) target of reducing the maternal mortality ratio by 75% between 1990 and 2015, which would require an annual decline of 5.5%. The 44% decline since 1990 translates into an average annual decline of just 2.3%. Between 1990 and 2000, the global maternal mortality ratio decreased by 1.2% per year, while from 2000 to 2015 progress accelerated to a 3.0% decline per year.
